[gasp] as she said that. any one of us. republicans went through a period of time where anybody could beat barack obama with whom do we want to beat him? and we had santorum and cane and goodrich and bachmann and all of this stuff because republicans thought -- some republicans thought that beating obama would be a lay down hand. now it's democrats' turns to beat this assumption. they believe the republican party because they watch most television stations and read most newspapers. republican party is ruined overdefeated, they are sowing salt in the wounds of the g.o.p. dead forever. anybody could beat ted cruz or anybody could beat rand paul. when will they start indulging do we real

[applause] you simply say his name and people naturally laugh. but vice president joe biden had some advice for all of us. if somebody is attacking your home, just go outside with a double barrel shotgun and fire both arrows into the air. which is very good advice. if it happens you're being attacked by a flock of geese. on guns, following the horrific tragedy in newtown, president obama came out saying, not let's go come down on the violent criminals like a ton of bricks. but instead, the president said, we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law- abiding citizens. in washington, the momentum was entirely with the president on this. conventional wisdom was that this was unstoppable. and i will tell you that three senators signed a very simple and short note to hear he read that said we will -- harry reid that said we will filibuster anything that prohibits our right to bear arms. [applause] the important thing was not the letter or the filibuster. it

she also had breakfast with joe biden yesterday morning. both meetings in a sense showed some degree of democratic unity in contrast to all the sniping between the republican establishment and the tea party in d.c. lately. what we can virtually be certain of that did not come up was a clinton connection to an investigation at the department of homeland security and some pretty complicated allegations about conflicts of interest and mismanagement of something called the e-5 visa program which specifically grants special visas to foreigner who's are willing to invest half a million dollars in the u.s., presumably to create jobs. here is the controversy now. a guy named allah hundred degree who runs that visa program has been nominated to being executive director at dhs overall. now that's in question. he intervened to help a company called gulf coast nun other than hillary clinton's brother rodham. partners and shares of virginia office building with another company called green tech which was started by terry mcauliff a very familiar name in democratic politics. he is running for gove

, and it was for things to come. the next big fight we had in washington was over guns. .. >> but vice president joe biden said if someone is attacking your home, just go outside with a double-barreled shotgun and fired both barrels in the air. which is very, very good advice. if it so happens that you are being attacked by a flock of geese. [laughter] you know, on the subject of guns, following the horrific tragedy of newtown, president obama came out not saying let's stand up and go after violent criminals, not saying what protect the innocent. i think that we ought to come down on them like a ton of bricks. [applause] but instead, the president said that we will use this as an excuse to go after the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. i must tell you that in washington momentum was entirely with the president on this. the conventional wisdom was this was unstoppable. i will tell you three senators signed a very simple note to harry reid said that we will filibuster any legislation that undermines the right to keep in balance.

of democrats are laughing about this. five years ago we had this guy joe biden, barack obama, hillary clinton, they went at it pretty tough and they won the white house. if you handle this right a good feisty debate is good for the party. >> i would love to put the politician in the bronco. they need more than beer. >> they can pay for the gas. >> one of the things the democrats are celebrating is the student loan bill got done. why do they think this is so good for families? >> because washington did something that matters to middle class families. most days we are talking about washington being incapable of tying shoes. the republicans say they won with their approach to make it market based. the rates are tied to the ten year treasury bill. they actually got something done. people went in the room and kept trying until they figured out a reasonable compromise. now we will see it go into effect. this is another thing. do people say i like this deal or do people say they have problems with the deal? it is one of the things we need to watch. >> this is one of the areas where you saw the divis

to have two out of 50 states do it. that is for us, a big deal. >> it is a big deal. bfd as joe biden would say. >> i think you'll see other countries look at uruguay and starting to move forward, too. down through central america, vicente fox is the former president of mexico. we know mexico decriminalized possession of all drugs a few years back. you can look at argentina and chile. i think you can look at a number of other countries that are probably going to move forward. so many countries have already decriminalized, not just possession of marijuana but other drugs. portugal has been out in front. who knows what they'll do. but i think you're going to see a movement here. >> bill: and are we going to see a movement in this country among other states? >> you bet. you bet. you know, the policies for washington and colorado haven't really even taken effect yet. so look to january and you'll see it. in other states already -- >> bill: they're just deciding where people can buy it and how much they pay and what taxes are -- all of that kind of stuff. >> but right here, maryland and pe
